We all use Google every day in our day-to-day life.
Google can be your best friend when it comes to searching for answers or information online.
Though millions of people use Google every day, only a few can utilise it to its full potential. In fact, this powerful search engine can offer lots of great services, apps and features that aren’t on many people’s radar.
Google has shut down one of its tools called “Compare” that let you get price quotes about car insurance or mortgages. There are few other apps which may result in the same way as ‘Compare’. But fear not! Still, there are a bunch of other random, often hidden, but really useful Google products that you probably didn’t know about that you can enjoy.
